BRAINTREE (CBS) — Braintree Police were recently tasked with a different type of task — apprehending a deer.
Officials say that Animal Control Officer Dave Littlewood responded to a “disorderly” baby deer on Friday.
The fawn attempted to escape the officer, but Littlewood held onto the baby deer until it was let go in nearby woods.
